I have now finished the couch to 5K and would like to share some of my thoughts. Being the wrong side of 40 I decided that I needed to something as my work is mostly a desk job. I used to play a lot of sport when younger but lately nothing. So 9 weeks to run 5K here I come. Well done to all those who are also taking up the challenge. Ok back to my thoughts, cough. I found this course a little to much on occasions and sometimes I would go back a week and repeat. Also later on in the course running every other day was a bit hard so I changed it. After a run I would have 2 days off instead of 1. Listening to the pod cast was also very helpful. As I said earlier I have now completed the course and have run half a dozen 5K's now still having 2 days off between :-). You don't have to finish it in 9 weeks, just finish it!! Happy running
